Twin-cylinder Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 to get 270 degree firing order – Report
Posted on: Apr 9, 2017 - 12:40pm IST
The upcoming twin-cylinder Royal Enfield is expected to displace around 750 cc.
New details have emerged about the upcoming twin cylinder Royal Enfield motorcycle thanks to a report in MCN. Expected to be called the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750, the motorcycle’s highlight is the new parallel twin mill.
The report adds that the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 was spotted by the publication recently in the UK. The bike was in production-ready form, but no new pictures have been shared. The exhaust note from the twin canisters has been called as ‘throaty’ with a 270-degree crank.
Unlike its prime competition, the Harley-Davidson Street 750, the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 gets an air-cooled mill assisted by an oil-cooler. This will make it more cost effective than liquid-cooling. The bike is expected to have 17-inch rims with a 120 section tyre up front and a 160 section in the rear.
The Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 is expected to have an output hovering around the Harley Davidson Street 750 which produces 59 Nm of torque.
A launch time-frame for the Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 has not been specified, but it is widely believed that it is Royal Enfield’s new bike launch for this year.
